A Heart-shaped face has some things in common with Diamond Face Shape - and that is the wide cheekbones and a narrow and pointy chin. So they both share the same styling strategies that I’m about to talk about on this page.
How Do You Know If Your Face Shape is a Heart?Your face shape is sharp and charismatic, equipped with a pointy chin that looks good in photos.
Here are the typical characteristics of an Heart face shape:
If your upper half, from cheekbones and up to your hairlines seem to be the widest point of your face shape then you definitely have a Heart shape.
Be Open to a Secondary (or even a third) Face Shape
You may not be an exact Heart so you probably have a secondary facial shape. It depends on your features. If you pay attention to the proportions and bone structure of your face, you'll know what needs to be widened and trimmed down.
If you have a wide Heart face shape with angular jawline and wide forehead and mid-face (which looks short) then I also suggest that you follow my guidelines for Rounds, helping to slim down your broad face. Or if you have a slim Heart face just like Kim Kardashian I recommend you to take a look at my recommendations for Oblong Face Shape :-)
How to Style Your Triangular Face ShapeDespite your photogenic facial structure you may still be bothered by the wide forehead which may throw your proportions out of balance.
Here's what you can do to achieve a softer, more oval-looking face shape:
Your objective is to create an illusion of a slimmer forehead to balance out with your lower part. Working on the chin area isn’t necessary because narrowing your forehead alone will help make your chin look fuller. But if you feel like it’s too pointy and prominent then I’ll throw in some tips for that too as we move along this page!
Your Best HairstylesSome of your best hairstyles are:
Jaw length haircuts give you the appearance of a fuller chin, evening out your top-heavy face shape. Long hair with bangs is super flattering and show off your cheekbones and keep your forehead narrow at the same time.
Avoid too-clingy hairstyles that follow the contours of your face, mirroring the heart shape, as well as hair lengths shorter than your jaw line as they only make you look toppled.

Your Best Sunglasses & EyewearSince your forehead and cheekbones are the widest point of your face, your most flattering choice of eyewear is angular and square that wrap around your cheekbones.
Oversized sunglasses are nice on you, along with frames that are slightly angled outwards the lower corners or are wider at the bottom than at the top.
Contrasting colored eyewear frames your face and may highlight your top heavy face shape, so try on a pair that is similar to the color of your skin tone.
Cat eye glasses will draw the eye to your forehead and away from your chin, and adds drama to your heart face shape.
Your Best JewelryMy jewelry recommendations for you are the same as for Diamond. Your best jewelry pieces are the ones that add width to your jawline – narrower on top and wider at the bottom such as tear, pear and triangle motifs. Ovals work too by smoothing out your overall defined face shape.
Chandelier earrings look wonderful on you.
Avoid long earrings as they can make your chin look longer and stick to above chin length to ad volume to your lower face.
If your heart face is more on the wider side, follow my suggestions for Round face shapes to help slim it down.
